I took a shot of the plumes of smoke from my mom and dad's house just an hour ago. Check out the smoke!
The fire is raging a path between where we are right now (mom and dad's house), and our house (in the Corralitos/Watsonville/152 area). You can smell the smoke, and the wind is NUTS right now. It is a serious fire, and they just reported on the news that it's expected to quadruple in size (and it's gone from 100 acres to 2,000 in just a few hours). The winds are blowing like the Santa Ana's, about 40mph, which is unheard of here, and at this time of year.
Here's a map of where we are, at mom and dad's right now, in comparison to the fire, so you can get an idea of where I took the photo. The red circle is where they're reporting the fire:
And they JUST reported on the news that they're evacuating all of Corralitos, which is CRAZY as it's super-populated (and close to our house).
